    Bonding grid for pavers

    My travertine pavers are going to be sand-set, so there won't be a rebar grid. What then?

    Re: Bonding grid for pavers

    The old code provision called for a bare copper #8 to encircle the perimeter 18-24" from the edge. Most areas now require 12x12 copper mesh when reinforcing bar is not used. You'll need to check with your building department because this is often a grey area for most jurisdictions but it seems they all want to see a grid now.

    Even if a grid isn't required, I would still want at least 2 #8s around the perimeter.

    You do have 4 bond wires coming out of the gunite shell right?

    I agree with Brian, most California inspectors demand some type of grid but YMMV.

    Thanks, I just haven't talked to my PB yet. Would you traditionally see that grid under the compacted gravel or under the sand?

    As close to the pavers as possible so likely just under the sand
